JUSTNORTH conference (á ensku)

Towards Just, Ethical and Sustainable Arctic Economies, Environments and Societies

JUSTNORTH is an EU-funded climate action project exploring the perspectives and values that stakeholders can bring to Arctic economic decision-making.

This is an invitation to the open Science Day of the 2nd annual JUSTNORTH Conference that is taking place in Akureyri, the capital of Northern Iceland, on October 10-12, 2022.

The host is the JUSTNORTH partner institution Stefansson Arctic Institute.



JUSTNORTH aims to change the future of Arctic economic development by bringing recognition and respect for different value systems to decision-making. In 17 case studies examining the historical and legal development of economic activities in the Arctic, the project team is learning the values of Arctic stakeholders and rightsholders to define the starting point for sustainability and analyses the justice implications for economic activities in the Arctic.

These values and their indicators from the JUSTNORTH case studies will provide a cornerstone for determining the viability of economic activities in the Arctic, as well as clarify policy, legal, and regulatory pathways for implementing decision-making principles based on justice and ethics.

At the conference, researchers and project leaders will present their findings and deliverables from different working packages and case studies and engage in panel and roundtable discussions.

Lunch and refreshments are included. Program and link for online participation will be sent out soon.
